Such a pleasure to meet someone whose family lived up the road in the 1850s - it truly is a small world, and Kathy was simply a delight to host - generous, kind, a font of information about the place we live in - you could not ask for a nicer guest and we do hope to meet Kathy (on either side of the pond) again!

Thank you Paul & Jeanette for being wonderful house guests and particularly for introducing us to the wonderful bigby mouse which Daniel is still talking about - hope you enjoy the rest of your trip in Europe and safe home to Oz!
